    LIVING IN KUSATSU, JAPAN

    I wish that when I had the opportunity to live in the small Japanese city of Kusatsu that one day I would become a straight up Travel blogger, because unfortunately I don’t have enough photos to convey how amazing life in a small Japanese city is. Kusatsu is a fairly new city (est. 1954) in the Shiga Prefecture with a…

    FINANCING LONG TERM TRAVEL

    FINANCING LONG TERM TRAVEL

    I took to Twitter to ask what you Travel topics you wanted to read about most, and overwhelmingly you all wanted to read about travel and finance.   So today I will be using my own personal experience on how I’m raising money for my future travels to Australia, and what extras you need to consider saving for when planning…

    BOOHOO GAMES: BAG DIVING

    I was recently approached by BooHoo.com who asked if I would like to take part in their Rio Olympics inspired blogger ‘games’. I was nominated the ‘sport’ of Bag Diving, by which you have to fit the most items into your bag, in a Mary Poppins or Hermione Grainger sort of way. I decided to try and pack for a weekend…

    KRUISHERENHOTEL, MAASTRICHT, NL

    If any hotel stay was the epitome of a five-star European experience, it was my 3 nights at the Kruisherenhotel in Maastricht. What was once a 15th century monastery is now an amazing design hotel. And if you think the building looks good, you should try out their wine collection! I do believe that this is the first five star…

    DISCOVERING MAASTRICHT

    So many countries, so little time. When I go abroad, I tend to stick to capital cities, especially when doing European city breaks. Flights from your home area to capital cities are much more often, and much cheaper, than visiting other cities in that country. If you only have a long weekend to explore beyond your borders, you want to…

    LLOYD HOTEL, AMSTERDAM – NL

        If you’re going to read about any hotel, in any city, make it the Lloyd Hotel in Amsterdam. One of a kind, full of history, and an attraction in it’s own right, the Lloyd Hotel was a stay that I will never forget, and one that I would love to re-live. So, what was it like to stay…

    MY LOVE/HATE RELATIONSHIP WITH AMSTERDAM

    MY LOVE/HATE RELATIONSHIP WITH AMSTERDAM

        Every single new place that I go to I either like it or I don’t. Simple enough.   Amsterdam is different. Of all the places, of all of the travelling, Amsterdam is that one place that I want to love, but I don’t. The concept of the city, the thought of the architecture and laid back life, the…

    TRAVELLING WITH A WHEELCHAIR

    TRAVELLING WITH A WHEELCHAIR

      Travelling must be in my blood. Quite a lot of my trips have been with family members, who have also spent a lifetime wandering far and wide. Over half of my European city breaks have been with my Grandma, let’s call her ‘WanderNan’, who also shares my love of history, culture, and architecture.   Only WanderNan is very sick,…
